Linking to Related Content

Related Content links help tie digital workplace content together by providing quick navigation links to other content. These links can be explicitly specified using content's Related Content panel, or are automatically created when entering the URL to other content in your workplace. Related Content can be added to Blog Articles, Calendar Events, Documents, Forum Topics, and Wiki Articles.

When Related Content has been added to content in your workplace, it will appear in a list on the right-hand side of the page in a window marked, Related Content.
